Teaching Methods

You will receive a hands-on introduction, meaning that there will be a lot of practical work during class hours.
Our participants especially appreciate the support of our tutors, who are around most of the time and can be asked if you have questions concerning the class or a particular exercise.
Classes will be interactive and will give you the opportunity to work on your own project.

The Summer School also includes a visit to Robert Bosch GmbH, where you will see
how a leading company in Germany works with Data Science.

We will provide everyone with a desktop computer to work on.
